Favorite Friday: Christmas is Here!

I love Christmas.  It is my favorite time of the year.  Everything is so pretty with the Christmas lights and decorations, snow, reindeer, elves, presents, friends, family, parties, Christmas cookies and food… what’s not to love about it?

The Big Picture – posted a gallery on November 28 titled Christmas Approaches.  It has beautiful photographs of Christmas celebrations from around the world.  One of my favorites from the series is from a place on my “I want to go!” travel list: Rio de Janeiro.  It features fireworks and Christmas- two of my all-time favorite things!

One of the most interesting photos in the series involves snow globes on display in Germany.  Germany is also on my “I want to go!” travel list, especially to go visit for the Holidays.  I’ve heard that Germany puts on quite a show and go all out with the celebrations and decorations.

There are so many other great photos in the series.  I urge you to go look at them all.  And to make it even easier for you, all you have to do is go here.  Before I go, I will leave you with one last picture of the Holiday celebrations.  It’s just so pretty I can’t help but share.

Happy Holidays everyone!
